This course is designed for independent study of normal and abnormal ECG interpretation. A nurse develops proficiency in “reading” ECG in dynamic and static patterns. In the static recognition, a nurse, given an ECG strip, will be able to identify the abnormality and develop interventions for the same. The dynamic recognition of arrhythmia is aimed at developing rapid recognition skills in the identification of abnormal patterns. This is accomplished by having candidates rapidly identify an abnormality while an ECG is displayed on a cardiac monitor.
